This week's Christmas Card

This weeks challenge from the gang at Bah Humbug is a tricky one - Cool Combo's, the challenge being to combine at least 3 of their previous challenges (recycling, new stash, glitter, baubles, holly, snowmen, trees and stitching). Here is my card

I've managed to use 6 of the previous challenge themes:
Recycling - ribbon
New Stash - the cute image from Karen's Doodles
Glitter - everywhere!
Baubles - on the Dovecraft BP
Trees - on the brad at the bottom left corner
Stitching - around the Cloud 9 Sentiment

The image is painted with Tinkabella Inks and all around the image has been frosted with crushed glass glitter. The snowflakes are cut out on my cricut and again frosted with the same glitter. The bobble and wooly trim on his sleeves and trousers is flocked. The glitter card mat is made using a papermania punch (thanks to Bah Humbug's Ann for the fab tutorial for this)

This card is also for the following challenges:
ABC Christmas which is 'F is for Frosty'
Karen's Doodles UK challenge which is Anything goes

Thanks for looking
